Now that I have my new HD-A1 hooked up, I tried a SD DVD just to see the 480p results (my Mitsu is component only). Leaving the HD-A1 in 1080i mode, and letting the TV change scan rates automatically was quite clunky, and I was looking into alternatives. When the player is left at a 1080i output, the display has to change scan rates when it starts reading the DVD, resulting in a 2 second picture blackout. On some SD-DVDs, the opening menu is upconverted just fine, but when the feature starts… So, I am looking at changing the output to 480p prior to loading a SD-DVD (that way, it does not change scan rates at all). My question is, when cycling through the available output rates, I must pass over 720p, and my Mitsu doesn't support that scan rate (480i/p, 1080i only). I have a friend that fried his computer monitor by forcing it to use an unsupported resolution and scan rate, and I don't want the same thing for my HT. Do I just need to have the display off when I pass over 720p, or am I worrying for nothing? P.S. What does everyone else do with the movie in 1080i and the supplemental stuff in 480p? Am I simply stuck with the (really tacky looking) transition between the high-def menu, and the standard def extras?
